'Jurassic World' Director Dubs Original 'Jurassic Park' Movie 'Inherently Un-Franchisable'
Universal Pictures

Despite helming the first and third installments of the new trilogy, filmmaker Colin Trevorrow says Steven Spielberg's classic film should have been a standalone picture.

AceShowbiz - Colin Trevorrow stated the "Jurassic Park" sequels should never have been made. After receiving negative reviews over "Jurassic World Dominion", the 46-year-old filmmaker suggested that Steven Spielberg's original 1993 film should have been a standalone picture as the series is "inherently un-franchisable."

"There probably should have only been one 'Jurassic Park' - but if we're gonna do it, how can I allow them to tell stories in a world which dinosaurs exist, as opposed to, here's another reason why we're going to an island?" Colin told Empire magazine.

Despite the poor reception from critics, "Jurassic World Dominion" proved to be a hit at the box office and Colin explained that he tried to do something different to bring a close to the "Jurassic World" trilogy.

He said of the film, "I specifically did something different than the other films in order to change the DNA of the franchise. The previous five films are plots about dinosaurs. This one is a story about characters in a world in which they coexist with dinosaurs."

Colin revealed that he introduced new characters in "Jurassic World Dominion" so that the sci-fi action franchise can continue for a "new generation."

The director said, "This movie clearly takes a real interest in creating new characters that a new generation is going to latch on to - Kayla Watts (DeWanda Wise), and Mamoudou Athie's character Ramsay Cole, who I think, in the Extended Edition, you really feel his purpose in a greater way."

"And Dichen Lachman's character (Soyona Santos), who just gets arrested at the end. There's more to come."
